A new Bristol Old Vic company for non-professional adults
Bristol Old Vic Adult Company Workshops
As we move towards the establishment of an adult company at Bristol Old Vic in January 2013, participants from our summer taster sessions, as well as any new faces, are invited to join a series of drama workshops this autumn.
Experienced drama facilitator and creative practitioner Liz Hague will lead the sessions, which will explore various theatrical skills and have a strong focus on creating and devising.
Take a look at the information below to see what each session will involve. The variety of workshops on offer means that participants will get maximum benefit from attending the whole series, but it is possible to book for individual workshops. Advance booking is essential.
